Now, I stopped eating meat about 4 years ago. I never stopped eating meats for animal rights’ reasons; I just wasn’t a big fan of the taste. But something about the cow video just bothered me. It didn’t make sense to me. If the cows were sick, why toss them around. Couldn’t you just give them a shot a put them to sleep? Or take them out of their misery? Why torture the poor cow by poking, pulling, and pushing with big cranes? What’s the point?
I’ve had the same questions about wearing fur. Personally it grosses me out. But what’s the point of wearing it. There are enough fabrics in the world to keep you warm. Do we really need fox fur on the sides of a vest? And what is the point of a mink wrap, couldn’t you just wear a scarf?
No one wears fur because they are freezing their ass off in Alaska. People wear it because it is a symbol of their wealth. But there are just as expensive, not fur clothes out there that symbolize wealth. So why not wear those? You could spare the poor fox that is hanging up side down, being skinned alive, and left to bleed to death while freezing.
